Relationships by Neale Donald Walsch
Neale Donald Walsch is the famous author of ‘Conversations with God’. In this book Relationships, he talks about human relationships. And more specifically a man-woman relationship and relationship that people call marriage. He talks mostly from his personal experiences and the relationship that he shares with his wife and the woman that he dated before he met his wife.
I honestly did not find anything new in the book. It is all about letting the other person be themselves and allow yourself to be yourself with your partner. Well if you can practically do that, if you can let go of all the walls between two of you, you can actually have the ideal relationship. But ideal things exist in the ideal world. Also, we have been conditioned from the time we are born about certain human behaviors, which I think is the biggest barrier to the human relationships. This conditioning does not let us be ourselves even when we are alone. Let alone in the presence of anyone else.
I like a few quotes in the book, and which I kind of believe in:
- ‘Living with you is like living alone’
- ‘My will for you is your will for you’
- ‘Sometime goodness (mate) comes to you in packages that are quite unexpected’
- ‘The words Joy, Love and Freedom are interchangeable.’
It’s a small 80-page book that you can read if you liked the message in the above quotes.
